I have been thinking it over. After seeing rattymouse post some figures how m4/3rds was declining in the US and how DSLRs crushed m4/3rds, I contemplated why.

Personally, my take is that few retail outlets offer m43 gear.  Obviously, big cities have more, but when you look at where people go to buy their cameras, from Target to Best Buy to Staples and Office Max to Sears, Walmart and so on, even small town camera stores, I'm betting that a pretty significant percentage of people who walk into a store to buy a camera never see a m43 camera.

Everybody knows that Nikon and Canon make the best cameras (I'm not saying that I agree; just a generalization about brand recognition) and Sony is a household name.  It's an uphill struggle for everyone else.
